    Meh, slim pickings this week. Out of the four I picked up I liked Secret Six the best, but nothing I would really classify as really stand out.

    Not much going on for me this week, but I did pull a little gem out of the bargain bin (for $2 a book, it's hard to go wrong).

    The Silencers - Black Kiss

    spoilers for big images (and spoilers)
    silencers1.jpg

    The Silencers are super-powered mob enforcers, operating just under the radar of the big name super heroes.

    silencers2.jpg

    They're backstabbed by their boss, who schemes to make a fortune off a new drug called Black Kiss, and who decides to replace the Silencers with an army of immortal, regenerating, metal-lyric chanting crab people.

    silencers3.jpg

    The Silencers plan to get major payback, and part of that plan involves breaking into a very justice-y hall to use a certain caped fellow's super computer.


    silencers4.jpg
    Also, the hall had a trophy room with a freeze gun in it.


    Eventually, they uncover the horrible secret behind the Black Kiss drug...

    (story spoilers)

    It's secretly Cthulhu poo.

    silencers5.jpg

    And there's lots more stuff that happens too. It was a pretty great read.

    What Peter did was wrong, yes, but for Jonah to publicly rip into him like that and do so without even giving a hint to Peter what he was going to do was equally wrong.

    What did you expect him to do? Pat him on the back and say good workand then tell him why it was wrong to do bad things before giving him a lolly pop? This was perfectly in character for JJJ and if he had the Bugle still, he'd have outed Peter on the front page the same way Eddie Brock ended up smeared and chewed out. There's nothing you can say to defend Peter here. Peter would have been black listed from all media and his photog career ended the minute he submitted the picture. JJJ didn't do that, Peter did. In fact, Peter nearly got JJJ shitcanned even more and would have ended JJJ's political career if JJJ hadnt noticed the doctored photo. He would have been implicated in the lie, which would have been found out eventually. JJJ had every right to do what he did.

    Agreed, and that was very out of character for Parker (even whiney Parker) if I may say.

    Secret Six was pretty decent with
    Ragdoll going in for the attack and taking out a fair number of the cultists
    .

    Also, the final issue of S.W.O.R.D. was pretty good, and had some enjoyable lines
    Brand and Beast rush to Lockheed's rescue only to find Lockheed standing over a room full of defeated aliens splinting his arm.
    Beast: You have changed, my friend. You know that?
    Lockheed: <alien speak>
    Beast: What did he say?
    Brand: It's untranslatable. And physically impossible for humans.

    also

    Death's Head: I'm the King Kong who shoots back.

    There's a bunch of other good lines and scenes, but someone else can post them(or scans).

    I'm not saying Peter shouldn't have been punished. I'm just tweaked that Jonah didn't confront him first a little less publicly about it. Even laying into Peter in front of the entire City Hall staff would have been more preferable then blindsiding him like he did.

    Never heard of that Silencers book, but those scans are good and I like the premise - I'm going to track that down.

    As far as the Spider-Man thing goes - how does the team of Waid, Kelly, Gale, Van Lente, and Guggenheim think this is the direction a Spider-Man book should be going? That's a pretty talented and experienced stable of writers - shouldn't somebody say "Guys... WTF?" at this point.

    That hulk book that came out had Hulk beating Thor in the Face with his own arm/hammer.

    That was pretty awesome...

    He didn't say it, but all I was thinking was "STOP HITTING YOURSELF! STOP HITTING YOURSELF!"

    Nothing mindblowing, but it's just an enjoyable, fun book. Really digging the interaction between Storm, Peter, and Bobby.

    He's got a point about it being a Hulk one shot so Hulk really should win, and that in a Thor one shot Thor would win. However I do think it rather silly that Hulk can just grab Mjolnir out of Thor's hand and smack upside the head with it.

    He doesn't grab it out of Thor's hand, he grabs Thor's hand with Mjolnir in it. It really is like forcing someone to smack themselves while shouting "STOP HITTING YOURSELF!"

    This kind of makes me want Hulk to employ other school yard tactics, like holding his hand right in front of someone's face shouting "HULK NOT TOUCH YOU! CAN'T GET MAD!"

    I gotta say though, it looks really odd. Did Mjolnir shoot blood before it hit Thor?
